Leeder Tune of 'Limerick Rake' (31) Tune of 'Limerick Rake' 09 Mar 02

I can think of three songs, in addition to the original, that use the melody of "The Limierick Rake". Does anyone know any others?

Some versions of "The Galbally Farmer" use the tune; so do Ewan MacColl's "Champion at Keeping Them Rolling" and Ian Robb's "Champion at Driving 'Em Crazy" (not really a parody of MacColl's song, except for the title).

It's a good strong tune, and I keep thinking I've heard other songs set to it, but I can't think of any.
